Pricey Cheap

european university rates prices are nothing compared to american ones

And I do a LOT of cabinet shopping, so I KNOW what I'm talking about.

The System Works

corruption can work in your favor

(In case you're thinking of going down this path in earnest, keep in mind that most of the expats in jail in the DRC are there because they stopped paying.)

National Pastime

number of times to kiss in france varies from place to place

This should clear some things up (including why those pesky Corsicans are 18% less productive than the rest of us).

Picky Eaters

the french eat weird pig parts

Disclaimer: pig parts are a Lyon "delicacy," so I can't promise that all Frenchfolk are guilty of this.

Historical Perspective, Part II

Scroll this-a-way ==>


Even though the first week of January is the birthday of Itchy Feet, on February 3rd, 2011, I drew the first Le Spleen en France comic, which of course became Itchy Feet. And since today is also February 3rd, this calls for a celebration! I can have as many birthdays as I want!

Above you can see a series of my little unnamed protagonists, one per month of comic operation (there was a hiatus between July 2011 and January 2012, so be quiet about that), featuring the most amusing expression from that month, backdropped by wherever I was living or traveling at the time. Also you can see how I got better (or just "less lazy") at drawing as I went along. I still feel like each time I draw the guy, he's slightly different. Would be very difficult to animate.

But who knows?
